    Thumbs up New Article About Bodyweight Strength Training on Bodybuilding.com

    Primal Fuel
    I've seen lots of posts on this forum lately asking about whether bodyweight training can be effective for building strength and/or muscle.

    Bodybuilding.com just published a new article I wrote about bodyweight strength training that I believe will address a lot of those concerns.

    The fact that a site like Bodybuilding.com would publish an article like this shows that this type of training should not be ignored or dismissed.

    Here's the link: Bodybuilding.com - Body Double: Bodyweight Alternatives To Strength Training Classics

    Good stuff, Al. A question after reading the article: what's the sound of a one-hand clapping pushup?

    Great article as always Al!
    I still follow my weight lifting program, but you have definitely inspired me to try working towards some of the more challenging bw exercises!

    Thanks! I love a good Zen Koan, but when I do a one arm clap push-up, I clap my hand to my chest:

    This is timely for me. I've recently started doing handstand work.

    Right on! I'm actually writing a new article about handstands for Bodybuilding.com that will be up later this month.

    Thanks! As for flexibility, I've been practicing yoga for a long, long time. I also do some informal stretching every day.

    My next book is actually going to be all about flexibility/mobility training. It should be out early next year.
